I managed to login via SSH to a Windows VirtualBox. This was on a Windows
Host. But the steps shouldn't differ much for a Linux host. (I tried to
start a VirtualBox inside my Ubuntu VM. But let's say: It didn't like it
So here is what I did:
1. Download a Windows VM for VirtualBox from [1]. I went with the Windows 10
machine. If you have another Windows installation available, you might
prefer to go with that because the "free" VMs de-activate after 90 days. (I
don't know what would happen after that date.)
2. After having started the VM, I downloaded the OpenSSH server from [2] and
installed it following the instruction on [3]. The following command didn't
work for me:
.\FixHostFilePermissions.ps1 -Confirm:$false
But the following did (with manual confirmation for each permission change):
I also had to stop a running "OpenSSHd" service before I could start the new
one (step 11 in that guide).
3. After that, I shut down the VM and changed the network adapter to
"Host-only adapter". With that change, I could connect to the VM from the
VirtualBox host using PuTTY.

Hope that helps setting up a testing environment for Windows builds.
